  • CONCRETE 101

    Slump is a measure of concrete consistency or fluidity. Consistency is the ability of freshly mixed concrete to flow. For given proportions of cement and aggregates (without admixtures), the higher the slump, the wetter the mix. Four-inch (4") slump is very common

    13/5/2021 · Concrete mixes that have too many fines may also be difficult to pump. Here, the problem isn't segregation. The mix is cohesive, but friction between the concrete and the pipeline may be so great (Because fines have more surface area), pump pressure is not high enough to move the concrete.

    1/1/1976 · Since such concrete is not able to be pumped with present techniques, the chief concern of this paper is with plastic concrete mixes which may be placed as a homogeneous moulded mass. In order to produce such plastic mixes, adjustments to the water contents and grading, an increase in the fines content or the use of additives or admixtures may be necessary.

  • Making Concrete Pumpable| Concrete Construction …

    Pumpable concrete is not a special concrete, but an ordinary concrete which can be pushed through a pipe line is called a pumpable concrete. This concrete should be proportioned in such a way that its friction on the inner walls of the pipe line does not increase to such a limit to prevent its movement at the pressure applied by the pump.
